Psyonix Announces Rocket League’s First Ever Double Drop-Rate Weekend; Celebrating Game’s Second Year Anniversary

Rocket League recently received an Anniversary update, adding a new arena, kicking off the game’s fifth competitive season, Overdrive crates and more.

This isn’t the end of Psyonix‘s plans to celebrate the title’s second-year anniversary. The studio revealed for the first time since the game’s release a Double Drop-Rate Weekend. Players will enjoy more post-match reward items, all uncommon or greater.

But that’s not all we wanted to do for our second anniversary, which is why we’re happy to announce our first-ever Rocket League Double Drop-Rate Weekend! Starting right now (July 6) through Monday, July 10 at 5pm GMT, all uncommon (or greater) free customization items and active Crates will drop more frequently post-match. What’s more, your chances of earning a Painted version of an item (in or out of a Crate) are doubled during the promotional period.

There’s more to come, of course, as Rocket League as an esport has never been stronger. The first days of Collegiate Rocket League Summer Series are just a few days away, while Season 4 of the Rocket League Championship Series is right around the corner. A massive national tournament is coming this summer to NBC; Rocket League is headed to ESPN and the X Games, and a brand-new Rocket League esports website is coming your way by the end of the year.

Psyonix really knows how to celebrate Rocket League’s anniversary.
